Have lived in NW Oregon for 20 years. just got back into hunting last year after a 15 year hiatus, technology has come a long way in that time. I agree with you about this forum; lurked a long time while reading/getting caught up on the newest gear- big fan of the knowledge base and minimal BS. I‘m really liking the ultra light gear that is available now.

As the self-appointed chairman of the welcoming committee, it is my privilege to extend a laurel, and hearty handshake (virtual, of course) to our new member.

if you have any questions about hunting the coast, i'll do my best to answer them..... not much has changed in the past 15yrs besides the amount of people in the woods..... that's the only meaningful thing besides the boom of lions in that timeframe..... not sure what happened, but they blew up on the coast.... they seem to have whacked most of the coyotes though, so if you locally have a lot of coyotes, probably don't have a big lion population.... have never seen that connected, but it's true everywhere i have spent time

Rosiebull, thank you. I used to hunt a lot around the Valsetz area, west of Dallas/Falls City. Now, most of my time in the coast range is in the Trask area. The amount of people last year for modern firearm deer was definitely a lot more than when I last hunted before that. Luckily a decent portion of those people appeared to not like walking/hiking.
